The best lagers stay true to their roots and Pravda is no exception. Inspired by the Slavic word for truth, this beer was brewed in the traditional bohemian pilsner style, offering a refreshing and well-rounded, medium-bodied lager. Truly a beer for the people, by the people!

Pravda is a golden-colored, medium-bodied lager. Known for a very prevalent hop presence, bohemian pilsners are defined by a spicy, floral aroma from the style’s signature hop, Sazz. Balanced with a rich, bready malt aroma, the flavor of this beer is complex yet refreshing.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. The aroma has quite a bit of honey bread with some lemony floral hops in the background. The flavor has more spicy hops with some fat honey and lightly butterscotch malts. It finishes with some fresh bread and spicy noble hop bitterness. Full bodied and hugely flavorful for the style, but a bit too much honey-like maltiness.

I’ve had this beer a few timesand have grow to love it. Nice fruity/spicy smell with a good appearance. Does have a bit of banana flavor to it, to go with the malt taste. Mildly hopped as well.

The appearance has a golden yellow color, somewhat hazy, once the head settles its maintains about a one finger somewhat levelness and eventually settles and leaves a wonderful foamy clingy amount of lacing gracing nicely the sides of the glass. The smell has some Czech-like spicy aroma that allows a decent malty/fruitiness to come through. The taste has that spicy-like flavor does come back to maintain a decent sharp malty-like aftertaste and leaves a dry somewhat crisp finish. On the palate, it sits about a light with a carbonation that is good for the style and allocates a fair amount of sharpness on the tongue and mouth, but not too much. Overall, though pilseners aren’t my true style of choice, I do understand them enough to say this is a decent one, but will also say I did have this other day with some pepperoni pizza and it was a great pilsener to have. Good job, Ninkasi!

Cloudy straw, fruity appley aroma, mod bitterness...bit appley but the malts are a touch heavy but aside from the apples it’s a decent boh pils...though with the Russian name + haze it could be a reasonable hoppy zhivoe.

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow with loads of carbonated bubbles that formed thin white head. Aroma is grassy and grain. Taste was a sour grain, very wet, and metallic hops finish.

It pours a very clear dark yellow hue. Thin head and many bubbles streaming from the bottom to the top of my pilsner glass. The aroma has that metallic and slightly sweet note that my taste buds tend to pick up from this style. The taste is very crisp and clean. With a touch of bitterness. It is light but not to the point of watery at all. Grain taste is not there but I do get a twinge of citrus as each sip fades off.

12 oz bottle. Pours a golden color, very little head. Aroma is sweet malt, with some hay and grass notes. Yeasty aroma is present too. Flavor has some spicy, bitter hops kick up front, then settles back into a malt flavor. Overall a decent bohemian lager.

12oz bottle pours a pale golden color without much head. Great balance of malty flavors and mild hops. The hop bitterness lingers on afterwards.
